explosivedog (1808) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - JAN 16, 2018
330ml bottle. Pours black with a big tan head that lasts. Chocolate, ash, toast, sweet cherry, orange peel, touch of pine, little booze in the finish. Reasonably big body. Outstanding.

GreenCat (214) - SLOVENIA - JAN 14, 2018
0,33 l bottle. Pours almost black with big frothy lasting tan head. Aroma of coffee, roasted malt, cocoa, caramel, some dried fruit, smoke and a hint of alcohol. Flavor is roasted malt, coffee, licorice, molasses and smoke. Taste is medium sweet and medium bitter. Body is full, texture thick and carbonation average. Finish is long, lasting bitter coffee.

kaserov (1096) - Oviedo, SPAIN - JAN 13, 2018
Color negro con capa de espuma marrón de tres dedos de grosor y buena retención. Carbonatación suave. Textura oleosa. Chocolate difuso, café, ceniza, recuerdos de especias y lúpulo en aroma. En boca hay chocolate difuso, café, ceniza, lúpulo, recuerdos de especias que pueden ser perfectamente cosa del azúcar cassonade, que desconozco. Amarga desde un inicio, sin atisbo de dulzor. Final amargo. Seca. Postgusto a ceniza. No es la Porter más sofisticada del mundo y, desde luego, está lejos de mis gustos, pero cumple. Tambien he de decir que 50 cl., de esto se quedan algo largos. Justificar un Top 50 de Imperial Porters es difícil. Pero es solo mi punto de vista.

DerWeg (1748) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 10, 2018
Can pours a viscous very dark brown coat and massive cocoa head. Dry and fruity and roasty aroma. Taste of rich roasted malt and coffee, bitter hops, and bready-demerara richness makes this a treat.

4.2
Pdubyah (833) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - JAN 5, 2018
Wow, there's no hiding from the amazing taste in this, rich deep dark burnt coffee chocolate and smoke. That's rather a surprise from a beer that has not a lot of aroma.

3.9
Canmoore (502) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 29, 2017
Pours a jet black with a frothy brown head, aroma has notes of chocolate, coffee, figs, and toasted malts. Tasting notes include dark chocolate, toffee, espresso, and some bittering hops. Palate is oily, with a roasted coffee finish.

3.9
Metalchopz (3672) - Cantley, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 27, 2017
My first experience from this brewery, which I have been wanting to try for a while. Black colour with hardly any highlights. Huge creamy warm beige head, great retention and loads of sticky lace. Aromas of chocolate malts, cocoa nibs with hints of coffee and roasted malts. Roasted malt taste with some liquorice notes, molasses, chocolate and decent hops in the finish. Lightly oily mouthfeel with a dry end. A pretty nice first experience.
